What’s your Minnetonka story?
I got my first pair of Minnetonka mocs my freshman year of college when my mom came to visit me. They were the classic Thunderbird Boat Sole and I wore them into the ground. At the time, my style was really bohemian, and they were my favorite shoes for my long walks to and from class. My mom also bought a pair the same day and has since replaced them with an identical pair. She loves Minnetonka mocs too!

If you could explain your style in one word or phrase what would it be?
Polished, but not stuffy. I love looking put together but with some fun flair.

Whose style inspires you? Where do you find your inspiration?
I love classic icons like Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O, but my favorite modern icon is Olivia Palermo. She looks good in everything! I look for information online through style icons, blogs, and I’m always looking for ideas in my favorite magazines and catalogs.

What’s your favorite trend for fall?
Anything Baroque inspired! I loved all of the brocade I saw from fashion week photos. It’s timeless, classic, and totally chic!

What song do you currently have on repeat?
“Wildest Moments” by Jessie Ware

My Minnetonka must-have item is _____________.
The classic driving moc! It’s neutral enough that it can go with so many different styles of clothing.

What’s your Minnetonka story?
I actually purchased my first pair of Minnetonka moccasins at a small gift shop in northern Michigan a couple of summers ago. I absolutely loved how stylish and comfortable they were, and wore them all season and into the next. I love finding gems in hidden places and Minnetonka mocs were just that!

If you could explain your style in one word or phrase what would it be?
Hmm, style meets little kid’s view finder. I love fashion and adventure. Why not mix the two?

Whose style inspires you? Where do you find your inspiration?
I find my inspiration from everyday girls like me; that’s why I love reading personal style blogs. I’m also really inspired by my surroundings and seasons. I love floral, mixing patterns and bright colors.

What song do you currently have on repeat?
I’m currently in love with Tegan and Sara’s new song – Closer. It’s a bit different than their old stuff, but so fun and great to blast in the car or at work.

My Minnetonka must-have item is _____________.
My Suede Skimmer Moc’s. They go with everything and are the most comfortable shoes I own. The more you wear them too, the better they get.
